our trip to oregon: the hikes!

One of our favorite parts of our vacation were all the beautiful hikes we went on. We kind of laugh at ourselves because we always think we are hikers, but we hardly do it. Well, in Oregon we changed that around and went on 3 hikes in 3 days. They were beautiful.

Drift Creek Falls: a hike through dense and lusciously green forest that ends at a suspension bridge and waterfall.

^Evelyn was quite the hiker. She kept saying "walk" and would have walked more if we had weeks to do the hike. 

Short Sand Beach : our favorite hike ever! Not to mention one of the most beautiful. Can't beat ending at the beach.

Multnomah Falls

Spectacular. I just don't know how else to describe it. We were in awe the minute we pulled up. We walked the .2 miles to the bridge and then decided to continue up another mile to the very tip top. I wasn't sure if Blake could make it, but we took each of the 11 switchbacks in 700 feet one at a time and eventually made it. I was so proud of him. Brandon was a superstar. He was carrying Evelyn in the backpack, but managed to carry Blake on a few of the switchbacks. We may have bribed Blake with cookies and promised to let him have root beer for dinner if he walked the entire way down. I'm glad he learned to do a hard thing.
